Have you ever worn a suit that is perfect for biking, made out of recycled plastic bottles and coffee grounds, and is waterproof and ultra-stretchable? Meet TRANZEND, Taelor’s newest collaboration in sustainable fashion! Their first-ever waterproof, anti-odour, ultra-stretchable, wrinkle-free, highly breathable and UV protected two-piece suit is designed for the modern man’s active lifestyle.
London artist ventures to geek gear
London is a vibrant metropolitan city that rains consistently throughout the year. Many men wear suits for work and casual occasions on a daily basis. However, these suits are often uncomfortable or not functional enough to fit their diverse lifestyle, not to mention the challenging British climate.
As an artist in London, TRANZEND’s CEO, William Chen, wanted to make a suit which would look great, feel comfortable, and adapt to many different environments. The design seamlessly integrates elements of sportswear and heritage fashion, so that you can effortlessly go from a business meeting to a track event to evening dinner. TRANZEND’s suits are perfect for those who cycle to work because the material is stretchy and breathable. Of course, it’s also perfect for rainy cities like Seattle!
Cool, sustainable tech for workout and workplace
TRANZEND is not created to compete with fast fashion. It’s designed to produce better products that last longer and create less waste. TRANZEND’s Ultra Performance Blazer keeps your body temperature neutral and dry with moisture-wicking technology — enjoy extreme comfort all day long on any occasion. Each shirt is crafted through ultrasonic stitchless sewing and laser-cut techniques. The magnetic cuffs and snap-on button allow you to move freely!
Besides design, Ultra Suits are also made with sustainable materials. Good sustainable materials don’t come easy. Many sustainable or recycled materials feel low-grade and cannot be used to produce quality suits. William and his team have spent lots of time researching materials for the Ultra Suits until they found a perfect fit — a cutting-edge fabric made from recycled plastic bottles and coffee grounds that provides the ultimate functionality.
Be impressed by the real value, not just how it looks
William Chen graduated from London College of Fashion, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Management. He understands the need for practicality, tech-savviness, and fashion. Chen says, “We don’t want people to be just impressed about our product because of how it looks; we want them to be impressed because they know the real value of our products.” He also used waterproofed, stretchable, breathable and rain hood on top of our shirt as examples of those details.
There are two styles: 1) Classic Ultra Suit and 2) Modern Ultra Suit (the one with a zipper). Both are slim fit blazers, and the Modern is slightly more slim-fit than the Classic.
